Lucky Dallas and San Antonio residents can still experience The Magic Time Machine, a time travel theme restaurant currently featuring Jack Sparrow impersonators and a car salad bar. The restaurant opened in a big way in Austin in the 70's at 600 E. Riverside, complete with a disco and a "Roman Orgy" feast on the menu. Check out the vintage "funky nostalgia" below, from the Austin History Center archives.
